Watch Jennifer Lawrence Kick Ass in the New 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay' Trailer

Watch Jennifer Lawrence Kick Ass in the New 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay' Trailer

Fanboys and girls, rejoice! We finally have a full look at the next cinematic chapter of the Hunger Games story. 

After months of beautiful but vague teasers, stunning conceptual posters and a preliminary trailer that didn't really show us all that much, Lionsgate has dropped a full trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. The spot gives us a more detailed look at Katniss and Gale's participation in the rebellion, Julianne Moore as District 13's mysterious President Coin and Peeta's brainwashing by the Capitol.



Holy cow. This may be the most gut-punching, chills-inducing trailer to ever come out for a Hunger Games film. With marketing that has so far been glossy and superficial, it was hard to anticipate just how harrowing, powerful and visceral this trailer would feel. They are not holding back anything. And Jennifer Lawrence once again is just crushing it.

Mockingjay Part 1 is easily one of the most anticipated movies of the fall — and as Mic's Elena Sheppard writes, "if it follows in its predecessors' footsteps, it will make close to half a billion dollars." That's obviously the goal, as the film is first following in the footsteps of other young adult blockbusters — namely, the Harry Potter series — by splitting up its final chapter into two movies. This two-part finale also marks one of the final film roles of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.


The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 will hit theaters November 21st. The only remaining question is: where will Mockingjay Part 1 end?
